How are download counts calculated?

Downloads are calculated per item page, per IP address, per day. If you stream a show today, that's one download. If you view the txt file tomorrow, that's another download. If you download every file from a show's page the next day, that counts as one more download. If you download the same file a thousand times the day after that, that still only counts as one more download.

Thanks for the info. I had a test dark unsearchable file uploaded and did not understand how it was downloaded several times.
It looks like I was testing myself.

I'm not sure what grade to give me.

Surely there should be ... in the case of audio...
a clear division from somwone who listens to the audio on line
and someone who downloads the audio .

If my audio says 10 downloads...
does that mean maybe 6 listens on line
and 4 actual downloads ?
